collective effort with Emily DeGrandpre, 02 2017.
Carnegie Mellon University is a learning ground for a very diverse group of students from all around the world. Specifically with regards to nationalities, the fundamental question worth asking is how the demographics of student population has changed
over time. We believed exploring this subject will open up to drawing a bigger picture that shows a general trend in students coming to this school from each country. Not only that but this would also work as a rudimentary datascape that generates more
questions about each country’s familiarity with CMU, its political and economical state, and attitude towards education.
Raw data was extracted from CMU fact book which dates back to 1986. We compiled each year’s headcount of undergraduate and graduate students separately from each country and categorized them into continents and change in time. Excel spreadsheet
was a utilized to organize all data in different priorities, and grasshopper was used to produce bar and line graphs.
